National Food and Nutrition Security Plan


The National Food and Nutrition Strategic Plan (NFNSP) 2018-2023 describes how South Africa will combat the silent crisis of malnutrition and reverse its growth in the next 15 years. It identifies the school nutrition programme as a key intervention for combating short term hunger amongst children.


The policy indentifies the National School Nutrition Programme as an important vehicle for ensuring that millions of vulnerable children have access to nutritious meals.
